A lantern is described as a portable protective case for light (by way of Merriam-Webster), or in our Asian context is something you carried as a kid during the Mid-Autumn Festival. In Mlouye’s case, Lantern refers to its signature bag which comes in a structured silhouette that’s both graphic and minimal-looking all at once.
With a price point slightly above the SGD500 mark, Mlouye’s Mini Lantern Bag is truly made for the contemporary individual looking for an inexpensive leather bag that not only comes with a unique shape, but is also one that’s big on function and utility. Armed with two straps, you can carry the bag like a ‘lantern’ by way of the shorter top handle, or sling it effortlessly over the shoulder by attaching the leather strap which has a drop length of approximately 53 cm.
Measuring 17 cm wide by 14 cm high, the Mini Lantern Bag is great for days when you don’t have to carry much, and is now available in a wide array of colours including Burgundy and Palm Green (shown above) that’s crafted from quality Italian leather. Now, for those of you who love keeping up with seasonal trends and styles, the bag is also available in a croc-embossed calf leather, coming in a gorgeous shade of brown that match most anything.
